Workstation for DOS ODI Client Introduction: ------------- This document describes the procedure to setup the NetWare v3.X , v4.X workstation driver for ISA Plug&Play ethernet adapter. We provide two ODI drivers. The PNPODI.COM driver is a normal driver and PNPODIT.COM is a turbo ODI driver. It is highly recommended to use the turbo driver PNPODIT.COM to improve network performance. Location of Driver: \NETWARE\DOSODI\PNPODI.COM Location of Driver: \NETWARE\DOSODI\PNPODIT.COM --- Turbo Driver Sample Configuration Files: --------------------------- STARTNET.BAT: LSL PNPODI or PNPODIT IPXODI NETX or VLM (VLM's for NetWare 4.X ) NET.CFG LINK DRIVER PNPODI FRAME ETHERNET_802.3 EtherID = 0000B4123456 ----> This keyword is Ethernet ID of a adapter, and only required when more than one ethernet adapters exist on one system or for Turbo Driver LINK DRIVER PNPODIT FRAME ETHERNET_802.3 EtherID = 0000B4123456 ----> This keyword is Ethernet ID of a adapter, and only required when more than one ethernet adapters exist on one system Setup Procedures for NetWare 3.11/3.12 Client : ----------------------------------------------- Before you start with the installation process, make sure that the adapter is properly installed and configured. Make sure that your NetWare workstation operating system is properly installed. 1. Copy PNPODIT.COM and/or PNPODI.COM from the ethernet Driver Diskette subdirectory A:\NETWARE\DOSODI to your harddisk. 2. Create a batch file, or add to your STARTNET.BAT file the commands listed above under STARTNET.BAT 3. Edit the NET.CFG file that you copied over. Edit the file per your requirements (see examples above). If there are two frame types listed, whichever frame type is listed first, that is the one that the driver will load. See above for examples. The NET.CFG file should be in the same directory with LSL.COM file. Setup Procedures for NetWare 4.X Client with vlm: ----------------------------------------------- The installation utility INSTALL.EXE is located on NetWare's "Workstation for DOS" disk. Run INSTALL.EXE from the Workstation for DOS Disk. The NetWare Client Install program screen will appear. You must complete each of the questions. These options are specific to your needs. 1. Enter the destination directory for the NetWare Client. (The default directory is C:\NWCLIENT.) 2. Gives you the option to automatically update the CONFIG.SYS and the AUTOEXEC.BAT files or modify them at a later time manually. 3. Do you wish to install support for MS Windows ? (Y/N) (MS Windows Subdirectory: default C:\WINDOWS) 4. Asks you to select a network driver and provide configuration options. It uses the specifications you select to create the file NET.CFG. Insert the this drivers disk when prompted for the driver disk and specify the driver path A:\NETWARE\DOSODI 5. Press <Enter> to install NOTE: ----- 1. Be sure to add LASTDRIVE=Z to your CONFIG.SYS file for the network mappings to work properly. 2. Installing Multiple LAN Adapters: The keyword, EtherID, is provided for multiple LAN adapters in a single system by PNPODIT.COM/PNPODI.COM. If EtherID unknown, you can ignore it in the NET.CFG file and directly run PNPODI.COM/ PNPODIT.COM under the DOS prompt, then your screen will display every adapter EtherID and select which one you need.Download Driver Pack
After your driver has been downloaded, follow these simple steps to install it.
Expand the archive file (if the download file is in zip or rar format).
If the expanded file has an .exe extension, double click it and follow the installation instructions.
Otherwise, open Device Manager by right-clicking the Start menu and selecting Device Manager.
Find the device and model you want to update in the device list.
Double-click on it to open the Properties dialog box.
From the Properties dialog box, select the Driver tab.
Click the Update Driver button, then follow the instructions.
Very important: You must reboot your system to ensure that any driver updates have taken effect.
